Calling education a fundamental right, Guterres said that now is the time for all nations to ensure taking actual steps to develop welcoming and inclusive learning environments for all.



He urged nations to end all discriminatory laws and practices that hinder access to education.

According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, currently around 80 per cent of school-aged Afghan girls and young women are out of school under Taliban rule, as they are denied access to secondary schools and universities. United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs yesterday (January 24) said that now 1.1 million Afghan girls are banned from secondary school and more than 1 lakh others are banned from universities.
